Tango de los Impressionistas
¡La Milonga de los Impresionistas! We celebrate Impressionists on the Water with light, laughter, and beautiful Argentine tango en plein air. The museum's Court of Honor will become an outdoor milonga for about a hundred couples to gather and dance. Presented by TangoCalifia. Hosted by Beatrice Bowles and Terence Clarke.
Also featuring plein-air painting by Marius Starkey, who spontaneously creates a complete and vibrant painting on the spot.
The guest lecture Smooth Sailing on the Seine? Not Always: Discover the Impressionists' Racy Side by Dr. Anne Prah-Perochon has been cancelled.
James A. Ganz is the curator for the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Nautical life is revealed in more than 80 remarkable paintings and works on paper by artists such as Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Maurice Denis, and Paul Signac—Impressionists and Post-Impressionists whose breathtaking artistry reflects a deep understanding of pleasure boating and competition. Their brushwork suggests both the atmospheric effects and the sensations of movement that contribute to these enterprises on the water.

Note: the Legion of Honor will close at 5:15 pm and reopen for the evening reception.
Members may upgrade their membership to the Contributing, Supporting, or Sustaining level by calling (415) 750-3636.
Q: Ms. Wilsey, in looking for a new director for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, you conducted an extensive international search. How do you feel now with Colin B. Bailey selected and a new era dawning for the Fine Arts Museums?
On March 24, 2012, Suzy Menkes, fashion editor for the International Herald Tribune, and Jean Paul Gaultier met in the de Young's Koret Auditorium to discuss the designer's career in conjunction with the special exhibition The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk.
